Can you really determine someone skill and abilities off of their zodiac sign and why do people feel like it’s so essential?

Yes, because astrology speaks the truth.

The "zodiac sign" is ONLY 2% of the entire astrology for a particular person and no two people are astrologically identical.
Yes, given the natal chart of 40-50 factors (and not just their "zodiac sign" which is actually only their Sun sign) ... calculating where everything was at the MOMENT that person was born, as seen from where they were born ... yes you can determine the NATURE of their talent/skills .. but not how MUCH talent/skills they have ... and not if they will become successful off their talent/skills.
“All anyone can see in a birth chart are tendencies that will become facts if the person does not do something to alter them. Astrology is not meant to be a primarily predictive science. It is meant to be for understanding ourselves and also for understanding other people.” (Isabel M Hickey – one of the founders of modern Western astrology)
“Many people think that astrology is the Sun-sign columns found in every newspaper and online news media sites. Nothing could be further from the truth. That’s not astrology, that’s entertainment, which is what’s often stated in the fine print beneath astrology columns. Unfortunately, Sun-sign columns are one of the most persistently misleading representations of astrology. “
(Dorothy Oja: “What Astrology is and isn’t”)

You can tell if you will get along with them and have a better chance of it or not.

Show it works and how it works.
No actual research has never been done on astrology stereotypes. Too much work and expense when simply making it up is easier. Plenty of credulous people that accept astrology with no question. Go and google 'astrology research results' and you’ll find nothing.
Some people promote astrology as cut rate psychology. Whatever the problem, it’s due to a calendar date. Because we’re all programmed robots. That lets people use astrology for excuses and avoiding personal responsibility. Blaming a birthday is weak.
Read the first line Ms. 2%. These weasel words make 'real' astrology an equal scam. And Hickey was a quack.

If you mean by sun sign alone, no, you absolutely can’t. You need to look at the whole chart. For example, a Scorpio sun in the 10th house is a much different person to a Scorpio sun in the 5th house. The former excels in law and government while the latter excels in writing and therapy.
